Q: Solved: Automatic Updates Download But Won't Install

Hello all,

I recently ran XP SETUP to REPAIR my instalation of XP Pro. Since then, with Auto Updates set to DOWNLOAD/LET ME DECIDE WHEN TO INSTALL, the XP AUTO UPDATES have been DOWNLOADING JUST FINE BUT WHEN I TRY TO INSTALL THEM AFTER A RATHER LENGTHY PROCESS I AM NOTIFIED THAT NONE OF THEM WERE INSTALLED!!!

Anyone KNOW WHY THIS IS????

Thanks,

John

Preferred Solution: Solved: Automatic Updates Download But Won't Install

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello!

Sorry not had time to look through many posts to see if there are any similar. Right the laptop has had this problem for a while now. It just won't download and install automatic updates from Windows. It just fails everytime. The only thing it has let me download is Windows XP Service Pack 3. I have done a scan with Norton and it hasn't found anything. I just don't know if my computer is missing something vital. I've done free scans to see if my laptop's drivers are out of date and there are a few. I'm thinking of investing in one of these to rectify the problems. I don't know if this is connected. Anyways i'm not sure if i can post a Hijack This Log in here but i will add it

A:Solved: Windows XP Laptop Won't Download Automatic Updates!

I've got a laptop with Windows XP Professional installed, and have had it for about two years now. This is my first computer with XP and I've noted how the system will automatically install periodic XP updates.

Now I've got an Windows XP icon in the Icon Tray and when you click on it says that it is a Security Update for the Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 SP2. However, when you click on the option to have the system install the update, it initiates the update and seems to complete the installation - but the update icon still shows up in the Icon Tray.

I've also noticed that on the three Turn Off Computer options that a Automatic Update shield symbol appears superimposed on the Turn Off option, with instruction below that say to have the computer turn itself off and the update will be installed. Well, I've tried that option also, and as the system tries to shutdown, I see it trying to install the update, but apparently unsuccessfully.

Maybe unrelated, but I've also noted that occasionally, when I use the Turn Off Computer option, it will only show the Switch User or Log Off User options - and none of the others (Standby, Turn Off, Restart).

Any help or suggestions on what to do to kick start that automatic update to take hold?

XP Home SP2 on both computers...Two computers, mine on cable, a second on dial-up.
Re today's MS Updates - I downloaded & installed them on my cable computer but the other computer, on dial-up, can't even reach the page to start the download. I want to get the downloads again on my cable computer (by re-downloading onto a CD), then put the CD into the other computer's CD drive to install them onto the other computer.

I'm stuck what to do after I get them redownloaded onto a CD using my computer. I would put that CD into the other computer...but then what? What folder do I copy them to? And especially! - how do I start the installation process?

I am running XP sp2. The other day i noticed that i hadn't had any new updates since April 08. I managed to turn automatic updates on, which told me there were 24 updates due, so i let them download and install, at the end it said updates complete and succeeded (apart from sp3), but straight away the balloon popped up saying there were 24 updates due - exactly the same ones that i had already installed. I checked add/remove programs and realised they hadn't actually installed. I have tried again wth the firewall turned of - didn't work. I have also changed BITS to automatic. Does anyone know how i can solve this please?

I had a message recently that an update failed to install. (it was one of many that downloaded in a group) When I go to microsoft updater, it get a message that I need to install(its already downloaded) the genuine validation tool.(yet in the review history, validation tool is already installed but not showing on the add/remove in control panel) Yesterday, my automatic updater notified me that there were new updates, so I downloaded 3 new updates. All seemed well until the updater tried to install, then it just hung trying to initialize the installer. When I gave up and closed the screen with task manager, I tried to shut down the computer. I got a message on a blue screen that it was installing download 1 of 3 and not to shut off computer that it would shut off automatically. 2 hours later, same message about installing 1 of 3.

Should I leave my machine ON overnight and it should start checking for updates to download?

Hi everyone,

Got a client who want to keep every computers up to date automatically.

I done it by pushing a GPO to search of update every day (22 hour by default sound good) and install the updates ŗ 23:00 every night then restart if necessary (confirmed on every computer).

But the KB890830 from the 11 october wait for manual install in windows update on every computer since it come up.  I launch the installation manually on a computer for testing if there is no trouble and all go fine.  It pop-up the agreement,
accepted, created the restore point and the installation was sucessful witouth having to restart after.

So why this update doesn't install automatically, is it because of the agreement? Do a WSUS is necessary for skipping this part? The WSUS at this client is down for some reasons and we can't go on every computer everytime to confirm if the update
will be install or is waiting.

Thanks you

Where to start?

when I had my system (XP SP3) up and running prior to a xp sp1 recovery console repair I noticed that I couldn't find McAfee AntiVirus (TimeWarner RR), which was installed and working prior. RR support took access of my PC and attempted to remove CA Firewall that was installed & removed(?) 1 yr prior using the uninstall tool downloaded from CA (1 hr). I was told to reinstall McAfee - attempted & attempted & ... I kept getting an error about an issue w/ McAfee security platform (shrtcut icon kept searching for mcagent). I then contacted McAfee which resulted in a 6hr session that had a level 2 tech on my computer playing with my registry. He finally gaveup and told me that All I had to do was uninstall CA Firewall and reinstall McAfee which didn't work (when I later contacted McAfee inquiring where the level 2 tech had saved my registry backup prior to making any changes, all that I received for an answer was that McAfee could resolve my problem (100 % guaranteed) for $120.
I had done scans for malware/viruses using Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10, TDSSKiller, MalwareBytes, MS Safety Live, Viper, etc with nothing found. Also, I was not able to start in SAFEMODE - only the BSOD w/ error STOP:0x0000007B.

I use XP and don't know if this has anything to do with it or not, but the other day I downloaded 31 updates that I didn't know were needed (for some reason my Windows Update had quit sending me the needed updates and I had not realized it for some time, 'til many problems arose). Afterwards, I found 3 more Critical Updates and 2 Device Driver Updates that needed to be installed. I downloaded them, but they never installed, so I tried downloading seperately and they still won't install and don't give a reason why. It just keeps saying it's downloading, even after a few hours, for what should take a few minutes. The elapsed time of the download is exactly what it should be, but it still appears to be downloading. I cleaned up every little thing I could think of last night, but they still won't install. I only know what I've taught myself in the last year and that's not much. Does anyone know what is causing this and what I need to do to solve this problem?

A:Solved: XP Automatic Updates

RELEVANCY SCORE 56.8

Hello There

I am using Windows Xp and have recently had probelm with Automatic updates . When I log on The Automatic update facility is showing has switched off . I can not turn the Auto update on through security centre.

I found a help site www.amset.info.co.uk where there were 3 programmes written for repair/reset/reinstall of the Auto update facility . When running these progs the Auto update facility is shown to be working . But when I log off and restart a new session the Auto update facility is once again showing has been switched off and I have to re-run the re-install system to allow me to access the Auto update facility . So whilst this programme has helped me access Auto update it does not save any changes or something is stopping me saving these changes .

I have run progs to detect spyware ( Malwarebytes ) and to clean the Registry ( Regcure ) but this does not have appeared to help .

Any suggestions out there ?

Many thanks

Steve

Hi,I've just got rid of the Ucleaner 2008 and Ultimate Defender 2008, spyware, but I suspect I still have some spyware because I get periodic pop-ups, the automatic updates can't be enabled and the keyboard only inserts some letters, even if I typed correctly. Most Of the times I have to type the letters twice.
My bitdefender doesn't detect any viruses or something, which is strange. By the way, I've got Windows XP Service Pack 2, Bit Defender 2008 Total. Thanks for the replies and sorry for my bad typing.

I have all of the critical updates save for 3 optional hardware updates.

I now have Automatic Updates turned off - don't want the interruption!

I notice that on startup, the Generic Host Process for Win32 Services aka svchost.exe kicks off the Automatic Updates program wuauclt.exe.

One would think that with all the bells and whistles MS would want WinXP w/SP2 to be smart enough to check to see that Automatic Updates is turned off and not execute wuauclt.exe!

Duh! MS,

-- Tom

P.S. Anyone know how to prevent wuauclt.exe from executing via some other configuration switch? Ok, its only a minor annoyance, and wauclt.exe eventually figures out that Automatic Updating is turned off (and exits) - its all a matter of where to put the intelligence not to do something that is not requested!
 

A:Solved: Automatic Updates

Ok, I figured out how to cure this (minor, but vexing) problem:

1. Run -> services.msc
2. Right-click Automatic Updates
3. Select -> Properties
4. Reset Startup Type from Automatic -> Manual

Been busy with this since 1800 now.. searched the net.. tried all the possible solutions.. but I can't fix it myself.

The facts: I'm sure windows update downloads the updates..because I can see them in this directory:


Code:
C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
I also tried to manually download all the updates.. and install them from my hd.. but that fails also.

the windows update error-codes I get are:

Code 80070005
Code 80070643
Code 57A

A:Why won't my Windows XP download or Install the updates?

What are the problems? Is your system slowing down?
And, you really don't need anything in your "trusted zones". The 015's..
And, why do you need more MS updates? If you know your system, and you set up
security,....anti-virus,,anti-malware,,, and a firewall...And, everything works, why fix it?

I have a laptop that was hijacked. I am not sure what the specific name of the hijacker was. I ran MalwareBytes and it cleared most of the issues but I found that McAfee Internet Security Real Time Scanning and Firewall are Off. They both will turn on for about 5 seconds then turn back off again. I tried to run the update of McAfee and it seems to download the files but will not install them, McAfee just hangs at 0% installed. If I try to run a manual scan, I get "An unexpected problem occurred during your scan" error. I installed and ran AVG Free 2013 and it found and cleaned Trojan Horse Cryptic.CKU. I rebooted and tried to update McAfee again, no go. I ran AVG in Safe Mode and kept the log if requested. I ran DDS and GMER. It was not until after I ran those that I removed AVG. I can run new scans if that is required. Any help would be great. I do not have access to Windows disks.

A:Download Win7 Updates, but install onto a different PC

I've seen your question asked several times. I do not recall seeing it answered. While it is possible to manually download each applicable update, I'm not sure how you would obtain a list of applicable updates - unless you had a duplicate computer that was online.

I have to ask: Why patch a system that is not online? Why not use it just the way it is? If you fear that it could get infected via USB flash drives or CDs/DVDs, then install an antivirus tool and manually update that from time to time.

Working on a friends PC. WIn7 Ultimate SP1, Celeron E3400 @2.6ghz & 2gb RAM & 500GB HDD in 2 partitions.

The system was failing at boot. This was a simple change of memory socket on the motherboard fix. Discovered that Windows Update was disabled, looked further & found AVast Free was set to ridiculously low levels & UAC was disabled (oh & operating on an ADMIN account by default!) - All corrected.

Due to all that, I looked deeper - The PC was over-run with PUP's & several viruses. I reset Avast levels & killed 2 viruses. ran MBAM & TDSSKiller & killed a crap load more. After this the PC stopped connecting to DNS (Network good, NO Internet). Fixed this with a series of TCP/IP & similar resets.

Win Update failed 3 times in a crashed or frozen PC (inl. 1xBSD), MS Fixit failed, so manually updated Windows Update Agent [version WIN7x86] from MS Support (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/949104). Fixed issue.

Win update completed the first batch of updates successfully but stopped working on the second pass (freezing in the install process) & now won't even download, let alone update...

(oh & I Ran secunia PSI - All 3rd party progs updated)

Any help gratefully recieved as my "overnight updated run" after the physical fix, is threatening to pass into the third day.

A:Win7 will not download or install updates

I would suggest that you get the system thoroughly checked out by a Security Analyst to assure it is infection free before continuing to try and get the Windows Updates installed.

I have what seems to be a fairly common problem with Vista, I cannot download or install any updates. I have not been able to download any updates for a long time.

I have Vista Service Pack 1 installed, in the Vista home edition that came loaded on my PC by Dell. But I cannot install Service Pack 2. Since I can't download ANYTHING using automatic update, I downloaded the standalone Service Pack 2. When I try to install it I get as far as about 40% installed of section one of the download before I get an error message that says "Install failed, reverting changes" and so I end up with nothing installed.

I have tried turning off my antivirus programs and my firewalls but that doesn't help.

Thanks in advance for you assistance it is very much appreciated.

Hi All.

I frequently run processes on my pc that go all night. I also often go away from the office for a few days and then need to access the pc (which was left on) remotely to work.

My problem is that when windows finds an update, it just installs it and restarts when it wants to... which can be right in the middle of an important automation.

I also sometimes find that I can't access the pc remotely because it has somehow switched itself off, I'm assuming after an update (sleep is set to 'never').

How can I get Win 7 to download, and tell me about an update, then wait until I say "install"?

All help will be hugely appreciated.

Cheers,

Oliver
